Leon Sandcastle-Deion Sanders drafted by Chiefs in NFL Network commercial

NFL Network had an excellent commercial that aired during the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl that sparked the question: who is Leon Sandcastle?

Sandcastle was the fictional alter-ego created by NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders, who shows up at the 2013 NFL Combine to prove that stars like RG3, Russell Wilson, and Andrew Luck are not the most dominant rookies ever.

During the commercial, Sanders wears a wig and signs up for the combine under the name “Leon Sandcastle.” He runs a 4.2 40-yard dash, and gets hyped up by NFL Network analysts Mike Mayock and Kurt Warner. Eventually, the Kansas City Chiefs supposedly select Sandcastle No. 1 overall.

The commercial led to some solid jokes:

Michael Irvin, Deion Sanders hard on Tony Romo following loss

The Dallas Cowboys finished 8-8 for the second straight season and missed the playoffs for the third straight year after losing to the Washington Redskins 28-18 Sunday with the NFC East on the line. Tony Romo threw three interceptions, including picks on back-to-back possessions in the first quarter, and a third to ruin a comeback attempt late in the game. The performance cemented nearly everything about Romo’s reputation as a player; he commits too many turnovers and chokes under pressure.

Former Cowboys legends Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders, who work for NFL Network, were among the commentators who were hard on Romo following the poor ballgame.

“I’m never going to say 8-8 is a success, not a guy who holds three rings. Playing hard is good. Winning is better,” said Irvin, via the Los Angeles Times. “You watch all these guys, Robert Griffin III, Eli Manning, Michael Vick — these are top quarterbacks, drafted in top spots, they know and feel like they belong in that situation. Tony Romo is the only undrafted QB in the East and sometimes, in those moments, he feels like, ‘I have to prove to everybody I belong here,’ and tries to do so much and that gets him into trouble.”

Sanders seemed even more fed up.

“How many times are we going to sit here as fans and say, ‘Here we go again?'” Sanders said. “I love to win at all costs. 1-6 in elimination games, that’s telling me something is not getting better around here. The kind of person I am, I need to jump off and try to correct this thing…. I can’t put this one thing all on Tony. But Tony brings me to the same situation at the conclusion of every year. Take a picture, this date, and see if we’re playing the same picture next year. We always think it’s going to get better, but it’s the same-old same-old.”

I don’t really agree with Irvin that Romo is out to prove he belongs with these other quarterbacks, but how can you not agree with Deion? It feels like the same thing over and over with Romo. The guy makes some spectacular plays and can move the ball, but he’s so unreliable with the game on the line. Dallas’ front office would have to be foolish not to see that by now and realize they need to make a change.

Bubba the Love Sponge’s wife Heather Clem reportedly made sex tapes with Deion Sanders, Warren Sapp, Tony Stewart

This sex tape business involving wrestler Hulk Hogan, shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge, and Bubba’s ex-wife Heather Clem (now Heather Cole, and pictured) is taking another wild turn.

We passed along a report in March saying that an alleged Hulk Hogan sex tape was being shopped. The video was real, and Gawker.com was sued by the Hulkster for publishing it.

The video was of Hogan having sex with the ex-wife of radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge, Heather Clem. Reports last month claimed that Clem regularly had sex with other men with Bubba’s consent, so long as she videotaped it.

Now, Gawker, which is being sued for $100 million for posting a clip of the sex tape on their website, reports that Deion Sanders, Warren Sapp, Tony Stewart, and Aubrey Huff are among those who also had sex with Clem on tape.

It seems like an odd group, but we can at least explain two of the hookups: former Bucs DL Sapp and former Rays 1B/OF Huff were both big athletes in the Tampa area where Bubba broadcasts from. And Stewart, well Stewart just loves women.

Deion Sanders explains why he tweeted about the Pilar Sanders assault incident

Deion Sanders took some heat last week for making his personal drama with estranged wife Pilar Sanders public on Twitter. Last week, Deion tweeted about being physically attacked by Pilar and her friend in his Texas home. But Sanders defended his actions Wednesday on “Good Morning America,” saying that he went on Twitter to protect his public image.

“I can’t be alleged the guy that’s lost his mind,” Sanders told Robin Roberts. “That’s not who I am or what I am. I’m opening up schools. I’m doing many things for the community. I have endorsements.

“My son came and said, ‘Daddy, mommy’s called the ambulance, she’s getting to the ambulance, nothing is wrong with her.’  I said, ‘Oh my god, that’s the last thing that I want to see is the first thing the public hear is that I’ve abused my wife’

“So sporadically, and quickly, we said, you know, we got to really tell our side of the story first and get it out there and that’s where it came from.

“I’m not happy, I’m not going to say I’m proud, but that’s the truth. When you have an allegation that I’ve hit you, that I’ve touched you, that I’ve assaulted you? That’s straight-up ignorant.”

After last week’s incident, Pilar was arrested and charged with assault family violence, a misdemeanor. She and Deion have been involved in an increasingly nasty divorce. Again, we only have Deion’s side to the story right now, but if Pilar was trying to leave the scene in an ambulance in an attempt to drum up sympathy in her favor, Deion’s explanation for taking the situation to Twitter makes complete sense.

Deion Sanders says his wife and a friend attacked him, and he’s pressing charges

Deion Sanders is involved in a divorce with his wife, Pilar, that has become nasty at times. Pilar has made some damaging accusations about her soon-to-be ex-husband, and Deion has shot back. But things got really bad between them recently if the following two tweets sent from Deion’s account on Monday afternoon are true:

Sanders then tweeted that he and his kids were filling out a police report, and he included a picture:

Deion Sanders on wife’s $200 million lawsuit: ‘That’s like me suing a homeless dude for a burger and some fries’

Deion Sanders is going through a divorce with his soon-to-be ex-wife Pilar Sanders that has gone from ugly to hideous in a hurry. What started out with the two still living together during the split has turned into a $200 million lawsuit. Pilar is alleging that Deion caused her “mental distress, public humiliation, and financial loss” with the “emotional and physical abuse” inflicted on her by him and others. Deion thinks it’s laughable that someone would claim he has $200 million lying around.

“Where they going to get that money from?” Sanders said during an interview with ESPN Radio’s Ben and Skin Show in Dallas. “Where they going to get that money from? That’s like me suing a homeless dude for a burger and some fries.

“I’d have four schools built right now (if I had that much money), at least. Just when you think they can’t get any more ignorant. Let me tell you what’s going to be next. Me and — what’s the little dude’s name? — Mini-Me are going to be sleeping together. Or he’s going to be my adopted son or something like that. That’s next. It’s horrendous, but it’s to distort my focus man.”

Some solid metaphors from Deion right there. Couldn’t have said it better myself. He also added that he’s only being attacked because he’s happy with where his life is at and because he’s “making a difference.” In reality, his wife is suing for $200 million in hopes that she can take him for everything that he has — whether it’s $200 million or much less. As for how much she will get, I suppose that depends on Pilar’s lawyer’s ability to prove that Deion really did cut her off financially and only offer her $300,000 in exchange for sex.

Pilar Sanders: Deion Only Offering Money for Sex

Deion Sanders and his soon-to-be ex-wife Pilar are going through a nasty divorce. There is the standard amount of he said-she said disputes in their highly-publicized split, but things have been taken to a new level.

In a recent court filing, Pilar complains that Deion has cut her off financially. She’s asking for the court to make him pay her because she and her children are in survival mode. But here’s the kicker:

“Since [Deion] filed for divorce on December 21, 2011, he has given [Pilar] $300.00 and offered her money in exchange for sexual favors,” the filing claims.

Pilar says she turned that down.

At first it looked like matters between the two were amicable considering they were living together, but that has changed. It’s not going to get prettier anytime too soon, you can believe that.
